Jimmy Baca cleary has a strong hatred towards the systems that put him through so much prejudice. In "A Place to Stand" the narrator seems a bit too benevolent and caught in the wheels of fate, in which as reader, I feel that all of his misfortune could never been his fault. To me the story resembles the story of Job.
